Organizing a Sustainable Transition Through Choice and Competition

The Case of Ecogrid 2.0

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Following the rapid growth of wind power in Denmark over the past 20 years, energy infrastructure has become increasingly politicized. Fluctuating renewables not only contest the dominant ‘logic’ of operating the system, namely ‘supply-follows-demand’, but it also introduces new actors like aggregators and reconfigure existing market actors. In this paper, we study a case, EcoGrid 2.0, on the Danish island Bornholm, as a case of a ‘marketized’ solution to the infrastructural concerns emerging from the large share of wind power in the system. Transforming ‘flexibility’ into an exchangeable good, EcoGrid 2.0 introduces a new market arrangement with the purpose of solving the infrastructural concerns emerging from the increasing share of wind power in the system. We end the paper by a discussion of the politics implied in the marketization of the ‘collective concerns’, namely security of supply and climate change.
